Transcending the Plastic Problem

Across the packaging spectrum, the message is clear, it’s time to reduce the impact of packaging on our environment. From government regulations to the purchasing public, there is a national consensus toward reducing the amount of packaging waste with the potential to impact our delicate ecosystem.

Transcend is committed to working toward a cleaner environment. Through our commitment to innovation, disruption and new product development, Transcend is helping promote meaningful change in the packaging industry. The core of the initiative – design, materials and methods – represents a comprehensive approach to packaging that minimizes environmental impact throughout the supply chain. Transcend manufactures and trades packaging products that are recyclable wherever possible. We promote the use of recycled content in our packaging. We actively work with our client-partners to move their packaging solutions toward the highest levels of sustainability possible.

Simple choices in packaging can make a huge difference

Transcend specialises in working with leading companies to help design and implement sustainable packaging solutions. Utilizing recycled materials is important but there is so much more you can do:

Choosing materials wisely

Are your materials as sustainable as possible?

Review your supply chain

Are you leveraging innovation in response to your customers?

Review stock order patterns

Are you ordering more than you need?

Consider product size and format

Are you utilising your packaging design to minimise materials usage?

Avoid over-engineering packaging

Does your packaging exceed its true requirements?

Consider the end of packaging life

How and where will your packaging be disposed?

We don’t need a handful of people doing it perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.
